Looking toward Day 4

The Alabama House and Senate both convene at 10:00 am CST on Thursday for day 4 of the 2009 Regular Session. Look for live blogs from the Alabama State House all morning and afternoon long.

Alabama may "Free the Hops" soon

Wednesday is committee day at the Alabama State House and today the Alabama Senate Tourism and Marketing committee passed a bill that would allow the sale of beer with an alcohol content of up to 13.9 percent. This legislation will of course have to pass the full Senate before going to the Governor's office. Just last year this legislation made it out of committee but never came up for a vote on the floor.
